NAME
git-remote-fd - Reflect smart transport stream back to caller SYNOPSIS
"fd::<infd>[,<outfd>][/<anything>]" (as URL) DESCRIPTION
This helper uses specified file descriptors to connect to a remote Git server. This is not meant for end users but for programs and scripts calling git fetch, push or archive. If only <infd> is given, it is assumed to be a bidirectional socket connected to remote Git server (git-upload-pack, git-receive-pack or git-upload-archive). If both <infd> and <outfd> are given, they are assumed to be pipes connected to a remote Git server (<infd> being the inbound pipe and <outfd> being the outbound pipe. It is assumed that any handshaking procedures have already been completed (such as sending service request for git://) before this helper is started. <anything> can be any string. It is ignored. It is meant for providing information to user in the URL in case that URL is displayed in some context. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
GIT_TRANSLOOP_DEBUG If set, prints debugging information about various reads/writes. EXAMPLES
git fetch fd::17 master Fetch master, using file descriptor #17 to communicate with git-upload-pack. git fetch fd::17/foo master Same as above. git push fd::7,8 master (as URL) Push master, using file descriptor #7 to read data from git-receive-pack and file descriptor #8 to write data to same service. git push fd::7,8/bar master Same as above.

GIT-REMOTE-EXT(1)						    Git Manual							 GIT-REMOTE-EXT(1)

NAME
git-remote-ext - Bridge smart transport to external command. SYNOPSIS
git remote add <nick> "ext::<command>[ <arguments>...]" DESCRIPTION
This remote helper uses the specified <command> to connect to a remote Git server. Data written to stdin of the specified <command> is assumed to be sent to a git:// server, git-upload-pack, git-receive-pack or git-upload-archive (depending on situation), and data read from stdout of <command> is assumed to be received from the same service. Command and arguments are separated by an unescaped space. The following sequences have a special meaning: '% ' Literal space in command or argument. %% Literal percent sign. %s Replaced with name (receive-pack, upload-pack, or upload-archive) of the service Git wants to invoke. %S Replaced with long name (git-receive-pack, git-upload-pack, or git-upload-archive) of the service Git wants to invoke. %G (must be the first characters in an argument) This argument will not be passed to <command>. Instead, it will cause the helper to start by sending git:// service requests to the remote side with the service field set to an appropriate value and the repository field set to rest of the argument. Default is not to send such a request. This is useful if remote side is git:// server accessed over some tunnel. %V (must be first characters in argument) This argument will not be passed to <command>. Instead it sets the vhost field in the git:// service request (to rest of the argument). Default is not to send vhost in such request (if sent). ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
: GIT_TRANSLOOP_DEBUG If set, prints debugging information about various reads/writes. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES PASSED TO COMMAND
: GIT_EXT_SERVICE Set to long name (git-upload-pack, etc...) of service helper needs to invoke. GIT_EXT_SERVICE_NOPREFIX Set to long name (upload-pack, etc...) of service helper needs to invoke. EXAMPLES
: This remote helper is transparently used by Git when you use commands such as "git fetch <URL>", "git clone <URL>", , "git push <URL>" or "git remote add <nick> <URL>", where <URL> begins with ext::. Examples: "ext::ssh -i /home/foo/.ssh/somekey user@host.example %S foo/repo" Like host.example:foo/repo, but use /home/foo/.ssh/somekey as keypair and user as user on remote side. This avoids needing to edit .ssh/config. "ext::socat -t3600 - ABSTRACT-CONNECT:/git-server %G/somerepo" Represents repository with path /somerepo accessible over git protocol at abstract namespace address /git-server. "ext::git-server-alias foo %G/repo" Represents a repository with path /repo accessed using the helper program "git-server-alias foo". The path to the repository and type of request are not passed on the command line but as part of the protocol stream, as usual with git:// protocol. "ext::git-server-alias foo %G/repo %Vfoo" Represents a repository with path /repo accessed using the helper program "git-server-alias foo". The hostname for the remote server passed in the protocol stream will be "foo" (this allows multiple virtual Git servers to share a link-level address). "ext::git-server-alias foo %G/repo% with% spaces %Vfoo" Represents a repository with path /repo with spaces accessed using the helper program "git-server-alias foo". The hostname for the remote server passed in the protocol stream will be "foo" (this allows multiple virtual Git servers to share a link-level address). "ext::git-ssl foo.example /bar" Represents a repository accessed using the helper program "git-ssl foo.example /bar". The type of request can be determined by the helper using environment variables (see above). SEE ALSO
